Homey Aromas

Composed 10/14/16
Description: For today’s Daily Prompt: Candle.

Perhaps someday
When I move far away
I can keep you by my fireplace
And some by my bedside
But certainly in the kitchen
I’ll keep one of you alight
So it smells like Mom’s baking
Cookies, cakes, and
Pumpkin pie

The Candle

Composed 11/2/14
Description: The story about how I had no job one Sunday but I did the next.

I lit a candle
and
unknowingly
provided the light for the end of my tunnel

I lit it with hope
but no expectations
and it floated past seven suns to the heavens
where He dropped sunbeams
for me to follow
